What You Can Expect
Settle into your seat at the bottom of the hill and watch as the story of Amber Fort comes to life, blending history, anecdotes, music and light effects.
During the 50-minute show, admire the colorful lights that illuminate the structure and reflect beautifully on Maota Lake, and gain an understanding of Amber Fort’s legendary past, dating back more than 600 years. Learn about the 28 kings of the Kachwaha Dynasty who ruled a number of kingdoms in the area and see how they played a part in changing the destiny of medieval India. You’ll leave the show with a deeper understanding of how the Indian state of Rajasthan has developed its unique identity.
Afterward, you’ll be taken to Surabhi Restaurant for dinner. Located in a more than 300-year-old palace in Jaipur, Surabhi was once the home of Rao Kripa Ram, the Prime Minister of Sawai Jai Singh and founder of Jaipur.
The restaurant serves several different cuisines including traditional Indian, Chinese, local Rajasthani and European. Indulge in freshly baked Indian bread and see food being made in the tandoor (clay oven) in the eating area.
While dining, you can enjoy a variety of entertainment, such as a puppet show, or enjoy songs sung by Rajasthani bhopas (Rajasthani priest singers of folk deities). Browse through the coffee-table books on Rajasthan and India or visit its turban museum (free entry), featuring the world’s largest collection of turbans.
After the dinner, you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
Amber fort show was great and the driver and guide very helpful. Food was good at ooper restaurant but service seemed very rushed and no real atmosphere

Show lasts 45 mins and the story line is about the history. In places got ott but worth the experience. The dinner stop,was buffet but lovely location and good food,
Is it worth the price?
I flew in from Varanasi and so it was convenient to have a driver pick us up from the aiport and after drop us off at the train station.
The show was not bad despite us showing up late and catching the end of the Hindi show... but I could have just done this on my own for 4 dollars a person, though the times vary by season so check this!
The dinner was good but DEFINITELY not worth how much viator accounted for? Also the menu looked great
but we had a set meal. I was charged 1.5 Canadian for a water which was a bit strange.
There was a dancing and singing performance during the show which was a little awkward, they insisted on people dancing with them, we were full!
This historical light show was overpriced and so was the dinner and unexpected entertainment during dinner. Entertainers expect a tip. I would recommend the local light and sound show but not Viator's tour. Paid 80 over local asking price.
